I love maiden names as first/middle names. I think it sounds fine. He'll just be Shane Soto most of the time.Emily | 18 | Southeastern US.♂ | Samuel ◊ Edward ◊ George ◊ Arthur ◊ Ezra ◊ Gideon ◊ James ◊ Quentin ◊ Solomon ◊ Jasper

It does sound like a double surname to me. What is her first name? Maybe there is a masculine variant that could work.Dany (Also known as Athena Danielle)
Could I have your thoughts on these names? The names are links.

My nephew has his mother's maiden name as his first name, and my mother's maiden name as his midde name. So, his name sounds like three last names. But it is such a wonderful sentiment. I love his name and I think he will appreciate it as he gets older. I think Shane Cortez Soto is a great name. And you can always give hime two middle names, if you like.
However, I think it is very important to tell your partner how you feel. You should love your son's name. If you don't love it, you shouldn't use it.My girls: Grace Patricia "Gracie Pat" & Eloise Martha "Elsie Mae"

I see where you're coming from....but we use our middle names so infrequently, it's not something I find to be an issue. It's a great way to honor family...and something I am considering doing for a second child of my own.
If you aren't comfortable with it, though, maybe you could shorten it to just Cort?
